Abstract

[Extract] This document is an executive summary of ten companion reports that examined visitor activity at selected sites within the Wet Tropics rainforests during 2009/2010. The aim of the research was to provide a snapshot of visitor activity to inform management on how sites are being used and investigate visitors' views on site management. Visitor data was collected using a self completed visitor survey. Collectively, the series of reports provides an overall understanding of how visitors use the rainforest at both low and high visitation sites, and provide managers with feedback that can be used for site management and future planning.
